Roxy Music's Bryan Ferry at The Met Philadelphia  

Aug. 11

Bryan Ferry and his influential ’70s art-rock band, Roxy Music, were finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this past spring. And judging by the reunited group’s powerful live performance at the ceremony, its 73-year-old frontman still has plenty of juice left in the tank.

For his latest tour, which brings him to the Met, Ferry is celebrating Roxy Music’s beloved 1982 swan song, Avalon.
